With the seductive baritone that lends itself so easily to tales of the dark erotic, Jeremy Irons commands the text of DAMAGE. In the story of an upright member of Parliament who descends into a passionate affair with his son's girlfriend, it is Irons's meandering, almost sleepy voice that brings out the real topic of the novel: sexual obsession. A gifted actor, Irons represents the true undercurrent of feeling for every thought in the text. For example, there is a sense of reticence bordering on ennui as Dr. Stephen Fleming describes his early life, which disappears completely after meeting Anna Barton. Listeners will be sucked in by this audiobook with the very first words. R.A.P. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: JUN/JUL 99]
